    WHAT. I missed one of Goldie's Recommended series?! Unacceptable! Thank you for bringing this to my attention, sir!

    In the meantime, Elgar's Piano Quintet, a fine piece worthy of more attention than it receives.

    @Kullervo: You are most welcome. I will probably post some more Weingartner later. I agree on the Elgar quintet.
    @thetrooper: Very nice to see you again. Been a while. Why not post a video of the Grieg piece?
    Here is Reinecke's Undine Sonata, very expressive:

    Dudamel is a great talent,a very inspiring person for his country, and some of his interpretations are interesting, if perhaps a bit too subjective. I liked his Beethoven and also listened with interest on his Bruckner's 9th with Gothenburg SO. I had in mind posting that, but didn't find it on Youtube and I am too lazy to upload it myself.
    Having a particulary uninspired day, I'll just post a favourite of mine from my salad days, Schumann's 3rd symphony:

    I got the Dark Knight on vinyl playing - I know, not classical, but it,s Vinyl. My dad would love it, I'll email him next!

    Update: am now listening to Tom Tykwer, et al's "Cloud Atlas" film Score. Again, not classical, but very stirring.

    Thanks old chap!

    Do you mean linking to some random thing at youtube? I do notice the youtube-tags available here now... Yeah, obviously I've been away for a while. I'll see if I can do that next time. Anyway, listening to:

    Mozart - Rondo Alla Turca

    Yes, that is what I mean, old boy. Sharing the good stuff, you know.
    Here is two of Bruckner's lovely motets.

    Oh dear, that sounds ominous. Hope that you are OK.
    Schumann's Kreisleriana. There are plenty of other good version of it, but this is the one I did listen to today:

    Sibelius' symphony no. 7. Possibly my favourite symphony, and one which I have obsessively studied since I first heard it, so I probably have a potentially professional knowledge of it.
